BRP U.S. Inc. recalled some Ski-Doo snowmobiles last year.  Now that we have a bunch of snow in Wisconsin it is time to check your snowmobile (or as Governor Sarah Palin says “Snow Machine”).

Ski-Doo is imported from Finland by the BRP U.S. Inc. company in Sturtevant, Wisconsin.  The Consumer Product Safety Commission has the information and pictures on their website.  The hazard is:

Friction between the fuel hose and the cylinder head cover can cause the hose to pierce. This can cause fuel to leak out, posing a fire hazard.

If you are driving snowmobiles this season be sure to stay safe.  The Wisconsin Association of Snowmobile Clubs has a weekly safety tip.  Check them out and drive safe.
